Just FYI, looks like The Imperfectionists is only available in hardback, until it comes out in paperback at the end of March? Makes it a pricey purchase

Nadia | 13 comments I also think we should try to avoid hardbacks.... They are expensive and annoying to carry around in a handbag.....

Yes, you're right. Nevertheless, this book is in pole position. So we need the last votes to decide.

Nawal | 17 comments Hi,

The paperback version is available(not the pocket size version). You can buy it from Amazon.fr. Here is the link:

Jigna | 17 comments Hello,

I stopped by the Village Voice Bookshop yesterday and he seemed to have a few copies. He said he could also order additional copies if needed.

(If anyone is interested in reading the Imperfectionists on their own time, he also had the book available in paperback.)

Hello,

So meeting's next week.

Did all of you like the hotel you met at last time ? Could you order drinks ?

Maybe somewhere directly at métro Châtelet would be preferable ?

What do you think about this place :
L'Imprévu Café
Looks cool :)

that place looks good to me!


message 12: by Nadia (new)

Nadia | 13 comments Looks sweet but isn't it a bit small? Will there be a table for around 10 people?


message 13: by Anne (new)

Anne (myunng) | 65 comments Mod
I've never been there but it says that it sits 140 people. Are we expecting that many at the meeting ? :D


message 14: by Nadia (new)

Nadia | 13 comments It seemed like there were around 10 last time, but I've only been to one meeting..... How many turn up usually? In any case, I'm not particularly fussed. I'll go anywhere cenrtral, and not too far from a metro station.

Oh no you misunderstood me ! It was a stupid joke, I meant I didn't think we'd be 140 at the next club meeting ;)

I'm ready to hear any suggestions :) It's just that that place looked really cozy, and the kind where you can easily move chairs around.

Hey to all of you ... Where are you at with the book?
For our meeting place, is it finally l'imprévu Café?

In any case see you on Wednesday :)

message 18: by Nadia (new)

Nadia | 13 comments Finished book and am looking forward to our meeting tomorrow. What time? If we could meet at or after 8 that would be great.


message 19: by Jigna (new)

Jigna | 17 comments Hey I've been to the cafe many times. It's really cute and tucked away in a corner near the Pompidou center. They have more space downstairs, but sometimes it gets filled very quickly. Lots of drinks to choose from but no food.


message 20: by Caroline (new)

Caroline (liney) | 22 comments Hi there,
Also finished the book and looking forward to tomorrow's meeting. L'imprévu Café at 8pm is it?

See you tomorrow there ... though I'm warning that I might be late - a lot going in the office at the moment ...
